The Question: Is God good to all?

All the time? Through the life of a man called Job, The Question raises the ultimate test. How did Job respond when his world collapsed? What was his test?

Without an understanding of the gift and its importance in our life, we will find ourselves adrift, easily deceived and pushed along by the waves others create.

Here is the dilemma: We are told to seek humility. “Seek the Lord, all you humble of the land, you who do what He commands. Seek righteousness, seek humility…” (Zephaniah 2:3). Yet we hide from humility because we don’t understand it—and, sometimes, fear it.
So here is our challenge: Either we bring this dilemma out in the open and risk vulnerability and pain, or we leave the blinders on and keep wasting our lives, hoping we somehow stumble into the joy and abundant life God offers us.
The risk is worth it. Walking in humility brings new freedom, clarity in who you were meant to be, and joy in its expression before the face of your Father. As for me, I choose to take the risk. Join me, and watch your understanding of humility increase as the choice to seek it becomes easier to make.
